CONCENTRATION: describes how much of an acidic or basic compound is present in a solution. Strong acids and bases are 100% dissociated. Therefore we cannot interpret the relative acidic or basic strength among strong acids and bases. Strong acids and Strong bases have acidic and basic properties to an extreme. The s...
